DOUGHERTY NAMED DIVISION III LACROSSE NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK

LEXINGTON, Va. -- W&L senior attackman Colin Dougherty (Timonium, Md./Loyola) has been named the Division III National Lacrosse Player of the Week by Inside Lacrosse Magazine. This is the second time he has received the honor this year.

Dougherty led the Generals to a 2-0 week and a trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament Semifinals by amassing 15 points in wins over Kenyon and Gettysburg.

In a 22-4 opening round win over the Lords, Dougherty tallied six goals and three assists and followed that with a two-goal, four-assist performance in a 12-10 win over Gettysburg.

On the season, Dougherty claims 27 goals and 33 assists for a career-high 60 points. He is just 14 points from breaking the W&L career scoring record.

Dougherty was a Second Team All-ODAC selection this season.

Washington and Lee will travel to top-ranked Salisbury State for a 1:00 pm contest on Sunday afternoon. The winner will advance to the Division III National Championship game held May 28 at the University of Maryland.
